    Convince me.

    As I see it, if benefits still occur for all, it is not welfare.  If one guy gets 100% of potential benefits but another guy making $1M per gets only 50%, he has no welfare argument and the difference of another $1250 or so per month is not going to effect this person and the public will agree.      

    Something will change in social security. That is a fact. I don't like raising the age.  I don't like trimming benefits to the most needy.  This, a sliding scale means test, from my perspective, is the least harmful.
